Summary
Through an examination of the mentor/student relationship in late twentieth century works by black women, my dissertation argues that blacks in the new world have developed a distinctive communal ethos in which individuals do not appropriately mature, heal, or become self-actualized on their own. Rather, they require a spiritual mentor or guide to aid them in this process of development. Because Western epistemology often uses binaries such as sacred and secular or spirit and flesh, I employ spirituality in keeping with West African religious philosophy to suggest that the mentor's abilities, while not exactly supernatural, cannot be entirely understood by Western logic. The texts under consideration emphasize the self as constructed by complex political, social, communal, and spiritual forces
